asus_vk266h_vw266hEvery so often I like to post up the odd LCD computer monitor that catches my attention for also being great for used with HD content. Asus have announced four new LCDs perfect for using both as an every day computer monitor for office tasks, and also perfect for playing back HD movies such as blu-ray, and also gaming. The 26-inch widescreen Asus VK266H and VW266H have a high 1920×1200 pixel resolution, while the 24-inch widescreen Asus VK246H and VW246H have a 1920×1080 pixel resolution, exactly matching the native resolution of Full HD blu-ray movies.

It’s not just the resolution that make these monitors perfect for HD, it’s also the fact that they feature an HDMI 1.3 inputs, which delivers high quality audio and video signals to the monitor, from any HD source, such as a PC or console or blu-ray player. All four also have built in speakers, while the larger two, the VK266H and VW266H even have component input, and digital SPDIF audio output.


All four also have DVI-D and D-Sub inputs, along with the HDMI inputs. Great image quality is also there with a very high 20,000:1 contrast ratio, 2 ms response time, and also ASUS’s Splendid Video Intelligence Technology, which analyzes the video input picture and adjusts the screen to get the very best image quality.

If you’re wondering why there are two model numbers for each size, it’s because the VK models (VK266H, VK246H)and also feature a 1.3M webcam. Asus Press
